How Should You Prepare for Your First Legs Waxing Appointment?
No matter what area of the body you're getting waxed, the first step in preparing for your appointment is growing out your hair. It may seem counterintuitive to let your hair get longer just when you're thinking of getting rid of it, but the hair has to be a certain length for the wax to grab.
"We recommend hair be at least 1/4-inch long (about the size of a sprinkle), so it's a good idea to stop shaving at least five days prior to your reservation," said Petak. "If you are going to exfoliate your skin, use a film-free (meaning it rinses off clean and doesn't leave skin coated in oil) exfoliant 24 to 48 hours before your wax."
How Long Does a Leg Waxing Session Take?
You have options when it comes to how much of your legs you want to wax. You can just do your upper legs (your thighs), your lower legs, or the full leg. Each one has a different price associated with it. For a full leg service, prepare to sit for 30 minutes.
